Hello! My name is Vanessa and I live and work in Salem, OR. I am responsible for community management on a website created to give educators in Oregon a space to connect, share, and collaborate - OregonEdNet.org. I've been involved in community management on a volunteer basis for niche websites in the past, but it's been a few years and this is the first time that it's been part of my work. I look forward to learning from more experienced community managers as well sharing my own experiences!
I have to admit that I'm disappointed to find out that CLS has moved from Portland to Austin this year! I'm sure that Austin will be a good time though!
